Péter Szijjártó, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, held talks with Antony Blinken, the US secretary of state, on Thursday. The foreign minister said on Facebook that amid persistently high global inflation and rising interest rates and energy prices, introducing a global minimum tax would add to the world’s problems. Referring to US investments in Hungary, Minister Szijjártó said 1,700 American companies operated in “the most favorable investment environment in Europe”, employing around 100,000 Hungarians. Noting the upcoming NATO summit in Madrid next week, Minister Szijjártó said he would meet Blinken at the summit to hold further discussions in person.
